Since these appear to be the last two stories from Day 3 of AFM, we're combining them into one. We have US distro news on Alex Chandon's Inbred and word of a new creature feature from Toby Wilkins.
Per Variety, XLrator Media has acquired all US rights to Chandon's horror comedy Inbred (review here), starring Jo Hartley, James Doherty, Seamus O'Neill and James Burrows. The film, written by Chandon and Paul Shrimpton, follows four young urban offenders and their care workers as they embark on a community service weekend in the strange, remote Yorkshire village. A minor incident with some local inbred youths rapidly escalates into a nightmare for all involved.
Next, per Bloody Disgusting, Stealth Media is getting behind "Teen Wolf" and Splinter director Toby Wilkins' latest creature feature, Dead Sand, which will star Amber Heard (Machete Kills, Zombieland, and Drive Angry) . The story involves "two humvees [that] tear across a desert. Soldiers escort a captured terrorist leader, Gabir. During a “pit stop” Gabir escapes into a nearby abandoned industrial complex. The sodliers chase, but before they find Gabir…an inhuman creature finds them. A frightful radio transmission is all that remains of their final mission…”
